Days of Our Lives Writing Shake-Up

at . Comments

Ed Scott has been relieved of his co-executive producer title at Days of Our Lives.

He will be replaced by Gary Tomlin, whose long list of soap credits includes Sunset Beach. The decision comes close on the heels of reported tension between Scott and Head Writer Dena Higley, along with rumors of Scott allowing actors to change scripts.

"Ed seemed fine at work on Friday," a source told Soap Opera Digest. "It had to come as a big surprise to him."
